Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling, architecture, interior design, decorating, landscaping, and home improvement. The Houzz platform and mobile apps feature photos, articles, product recommendations, and a user forum. The company turned to Betts Recruiting when they needed to hire qualified Account Executives for their newly established European headquarters in London, UK.

The Needs

Account Executives with proof of consultative styles who are smart, hard working, highly professional, and capable of working in a fast-paced sales environment.

“Our partnership with Betts has worked well due to their ability to understand not only the hard skills we’re looking for in sales candidates but also the softer ones, making sure candidates are a fit for both the role and the culture, which is critical.”

Ana Harris, International People Services at Houzz
